Enogen corn said to require less processing to make corn carbs fermentable to ethanol.

Growers get a premium for the grain, but must follow protocols. So grain is probably not approved for food use.

"Enogen trait technology eliminates the need to utilize liquid alpha amylase enzyme in dry grind ethanol production. By incorporating Enogen grain into its production process, an ethanol plant can realize dramatic improvements in ethanol production while reducing energy, gas and water usage."
